Situated in the heart of Cambridgeshire in the glorious English countryside, Bassmead Manor Barns is the ultimate rural setting for a romantic country wedding.
Set within the medieval moat of an ancient manor house and approached via a magnificent tree-lined driveway, Bassmead Manor Barns is a large farmstead with old and new barns, beautiful gardens and seemingly endless panoramic scenery. Truly unique, the venue offers grandeur, elegance and style. The medieval moat, listed as a Scheduled Monument by English Heritage, and ornate ironwork footbridge add a sense of history, drama and character to the picturesque setting and make stunning backdrops for memorable photographs.
Setting the standard for impressive wedding celebrations, Bassmead Manor Barns boasts a 300-year-old barn, complete with antique love seat, sophisticated Boudoir for the bride and her attendants to complete their pre-ceremony preparations and a fabulous honeymoon suite which is nestled away in a private corner of the glorious gardens.
The beauty and magic of this stunning wedding venue in Cambridgeshire has recently been recognised, with Bassmead Manor Barns claiming the title of Countryside Wedding Venue of the Year for 2017 at the Wedding Industry Awards. As well as the setting, the team at Bassmead received plenty of plaudits from happy couples who had their dream wedding come true at this wonderful venue.
Fondly known as The Rickety Barn, Bassmead’s oldest building creates a warm, rustic and romantic atmosphere in which to say your vows. Boasting exposed brick walls, authentic wooden beams and wrought-iron chandeliers, this barn is beautiful, distinctive and truly breathtaking – just what you need for the most important day of your life. The antique upholstered love seat is a favourite feature of the barn and a popular spot for newlyweds to steal a further kiss and pose for photographs. The Bridge Barn is equally impressive, providing a contemporary setting to wine and dine on the most amazing wedding food and drink. Sit beneath the exposed beams and gaze out over the countryside through the vast windows while expert caterers, Galloping Gourmet, serve up a wedding breakfast to remember.
Couples will love the Boudoir at Bassmead Manor Barns, which provides a sophisticated yet relaxing place to prepare before you tie the knot. With plush carpets, sofas, dressing tables and a full-length mirror among other delicate details, it’s ideal for those last-minute touches and spending quality time with your loved ones.
At the end of a perfect day, newlyweds can retire to the brick-built Dove Cottage. This luxury cottage is set over two floors and boasts a beautiful boutique décor, including a sumptuous bed, mahogany furniture, a striking black velvet sofa and subtle lighting. The cottage features a private patio, perfect for sharing a coffee the following morning. The views from the traditionally-styled bedroom of the Cambridgeshire countryside are simply a joy to behold. Your nearest and dearest can spend the night in comfort too, with seven en-suite bedrooms in the characterful Farmhouse.
